Cara Delevingne will host and executively produce a new all-female practical joke series.
The show, which will be hosted on streaming service Quibi, will follow Delevingne and her female accomplices around as they attempt to pull off various pranks and stunts.
Speaking about her new project, Delevingne said in a statement: “I’m so excited to be partnering with such a revolutionary streaming service like Quibi and cannot wait to unleash some necessary mischief.”
Quibi is a mobile-focused streaming platform which already has an impressive star-studded list of collaborators; Steven Spielberg, Zac Efron, Sophie Turner and Chrissy Teigen all have new Quibi shows in the pipeline, according to E! News.
Delevingne made her TV debut with Amazon Prime series Carnival Row this summer, in which she starred alongside Orlando Bloom. The model-turned-actress has also appeared in films Suicide Squad, Paper Towns and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
Despite the celebrity platform she’d gained through modelling, the 27-year-old didn’t necessarily have an easy transition into acting; she previously recalled how Harvey Weinstein once told her that she should hide her sexuality if she wanted any chance of being successful in Hollywood.
The star has said that she doesn’t like to label her sexuality as she “changes every day”, but this scrutiny made her move from model to actress difficult at first.
“In the beginning, I don’t think it helped,” she told Net-a-Porter. “One of the first things Harvey Weinstein ever said to me was ‘You will never make it in this industry as a gay woman – get a beard’. [It was] a long time before he tried to touch me.”
Delevingne’s new prank show doesn’t have a name or release date as of yet.
